Pearson College - Canada's full scholarship school for students of exceptional promise and potential worldwide
"Pearson College UWC is a two-year pre-university school (Grade 12 and Gap Year) for up to 200 students from over 100 countries who live, study and grow together at the edge of the western world. We believe that education is a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. Our education is transformational. There’s only one way to get here—by scholarship, worth $80,000 over two years.

The College was named in honour of the work done by the late Canadian Prime Minister and Canada’s only Nobel Peace Laureate, Lester B. Pearson. Prime Minister Pearson initiated the work to found a United World College “of the Pacific” as a way of continuing the promotion of peace and understanding in the world.

Pearson College is one of 13 UWC schools and colleges worldwide."

Our Projects
We work with researchers and clinicians to find ways that digital media can help people remain vigorous and independent, strengthen ties to family and community, and preserve their identity as they age.

HTML5 Reset :: A simple set of templates for any project
"Like a lot of developers, we start every HTML project with the same set of HTML and CSS files. We've been using these files for a long time and have progressively added bits and pieces to them as our own personal best practices have evolved.

Now that modern browsers are starting to support some of the really useful parts of HTML5 and CSS3, it's time for our best practices to catch up, and we thought we'd put our files out there for everyone to use. By no means do we see this as the One True Way to start every project, but we think it's a good starting place that anyone can make their own."
